Institute for Minority Business Education. Final Report.
The Institute for Minority Business Education was created to upgrade the ability of personnel in minority business and economic development organizations to train minority clients in the application of successful business techniques. To identify the needs of the target population, an extended planning period included the establishment of a data bank and the appointment of an advisory board. Following the planning phase, information and training activities were initiated, and manuals were written and distributed to minority economic and business development organizations. The training phase consisted of five regional seminars, each of 2 days duration in different parts of the country. The overall program documented the acute shortage of qualified minority business and economic development personnel and the need for affording target organizations continuous assistance in this area. It established specific priorities for adapting existing publications for use by minorities and developing new materials. The Institute concluded that it would be feasible to use several advanced organizations as laboratories where new techniques identified or developed by the Institute may be applied and evaluated.
